I had the opportunity to conduct an interview with a point guard from the class of 2013, Kendall Smith. (Smith: Deer Vally  High School – 2013) Smith is a 6″ 3, 155 pound point guard out of Antioch, California. He is one of the best up and coming point guards in the class of 2013. I created a list of 11 questions that I believe our audience would find interesting about the life of a young basketball recruit. These are the questions that I asked Smith, followed with his answers.
